Loc: It's all about the location.
Someone out there must make a speaker fabric sheer enough to see the speakers underneath. Seems a shame to hide them with the standard fabrics.

A nice job, but not the look for me.
I doubt the wife would be keen on having my speakers seem like they should fit as replacement grills on the front of a 1979 Ford F150.

Just personal preference.

It is good work but I don't care much for the look. My brother in law bought some white van speaker that have a similar looking grill

Nice work! Very sharp!

Do you plan on selling them? If not, do you mind posting a DIY on how to make those.

Cheers,

Here's another shot for you showing the difference the light can make on the HG Cherry



I plan to take new pictures as 2 years later I've finally built a center stand to replace my fan box above

Real wood is nice Bob, no doubt about it. But I keep telling myself, that real wood doesn't sound any better than the standard finish. Usually this helps.

I have to admire the quality of the work you put into the grill. I do wonder however if it is causing soundwaves to be reflected away from the listener. Measureable or audible I have no idea.

I must say the look is not for me, it's as though you have placed your speakers on the wrong side of a chain link fence.

It is however; a very innovative idea.
